The day WWDC 2012 got over, it left Apple’s competitors to stretch their minds beyond capabilities to develop and innovate something worth the money, and more over, worth the utility. We are eagerly waiting for Google’s I/O event which starts in a few hours from now, and expectations have already started shaping up. First we saw JellyBean statue held up at Google’s HQ this morning, which assures that Android 4.1 -JellyBean is on the roll.

The next in store was a super-tablet cum PC from Microsoft, named Surface which with its specifications is all set to beat the current day tablet from Cupertino based giant, Apple’s iPad 3. You can also go through our comparison of the week- Apple iPad 3 vs Microsoft Surface. The search engine giant- Google’s own developer conference namely Google I/O event is a few hours away, and with other competitors developing highly competitive tablets, we are expecting a $199 tablet coming from Google in this event.

Here is an excerpt from Bloomberg:


“Google Inc. (GOOG) plans to unveil a $199 tablet co-branded with Taiwan’s Asustek COmputer Inc. at its developers conference this week, taking direct aim at Apple Inc. (AAOL)’s iPad, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The 7-inch tablet running Android mobile software will be shown at the Google I/O conference, starting today in San Francisco, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private. The device will also showcase new features of Android, according to one person, who said the latest version of the software is named Jellybean.”

As it says, the 7-Inch tablet priced at $199 will be giving direct competition to Apple’s line of tablets, specially the recent iPad 3. Also, it is expected to be powered by Android JellyBean, as reported by un-known sources. However, do you really think a 7-inch tablet is enough to compete with iPad 3? It should rather aim itself at giving a competition to Amazon’s Kindle tablet, since the history of third-party Android OS tablets have not really had an astonishing record, just saying!

However, it will be nice to see some new products marked with Google label in this developers event which kickstarts at  9:30 am PST on June 27 ‘2012. So what are your expectations from this event? Let us know your views via the comments section below. For more, keep subscribed.
